Money20/20 Europe launches Rise Up to empower women in finance

Money20/20 Europe has introduced Rise Up to empower the next generation of women in financial services leadership. The programme aims to address the industry’s gender imbalance by giving women access to contacts, mentors, training and learning to drive their careers. 

Launched in partnership with the European Women’s Payments Network (EWPN), the initiative will select 30 women to take part in sessions and networking opportunities at Money20/20 Europe in Amsterdam on 3-5 June. 

“The global financial services industry is undeniably undergoing massive change,” said Tracey Davies, president of Money20/20. “There really is a money revolution, with many predictions that the next five years will unleash more seismic shifts than the previous five. The industry’s needs are changing rapidly, and it is thirstier than ever for innovation, creativity and leadership talent – which is why it is so vital to unlock all available talent to support the incredible growth opportunities in the sector.”

Rise Up is designed to give women the inspiration, practical support and access to a network who can help them progress their careers so we can truly unlock all talent.”

As well as one-to-one mentoring with industry leaders, private meetings with keynote speakers and special events, participants will receive a one-year membership to EWPN. One of this year’s cohort will also be selected to join EWPN’s Executive Board to help shape the future of the payments industry.

Applications for Rise Up can be submitted between 8 March and 5 April.
